The wedding day is a very special day and a little bit stressful too, not only to a wedding couple but also guests who were invited both to the church and to the wedding reception. The most popular dilemma is what to wear. The dress shouldn’t be too casual and too attractive. So what to wear to the wedding reception?
Guests should look tasteful, with style not to offend the couple with their dress. That is why they shouldn’t be dressed too casual, unclean or too provocative. It’s obvious that guests want to look nice – many people will be there with them in the same room! But it is also quite obvious that all of the guests shouldn’t look too good. Why? Because we can’t outshine the couple. That is why dressing on the wedding might be such a difficult matter.
There are some signs of what to wear on the first thing that connects you with the wedding ceremony and the reception: the invitation. You can read a lot from this small piece of paper – literally speaking or not. There might be a note “black tie” which means that is a quite formal wedding. You might also find there a different type of dressing code which will help you dress appropriately, like for example casual or sport.
More things that you can look at is the type of invitation and the place where the ceremony will proceed. If the invitation has very original fonts with sophisticated ornaments as calligraphy, thick cardstock you will know what it means. And the place. Look carefully at the invitation where the ceremony will suppose to happen. Maybe it is a swimming pool (that kind of place were very popular last years) or a Hilton Hotel. In first case take a swimming suit with you and in the second white tuxedo won’t be an extravagance.
The easiest time to get a dress, specially for women, on friends or family wedding is summer time when almost every dress will be accurate. Dresses in all kinds examines well. Of course not too short – most preferable are the ones down to the knees, and if it’s a very formal wedding, proceed at the even longer one, like evening wear. But dresses in stripes, colourful with big flower ornaments or really small ones will look great, bring even more sun into the happy day.
There is also something that will rescue not decided guests and match all types of weddings – little black dress for her and a dark suit for him – if he don’t have his own, best will be formal hire, which will help avoid to many costs for the wedding that isn’t even ours.
